The role of the Family Interventionist will be to facilitate one-on-one, informational sessions with parents/guardians of pre-adolescent youth in grades 5-7 throughout Massachusetts. Sessions will focus on helping parents encourage healthy eating and exercise habits as a family and strategies to reduce weight stigma from family members. Two sessions are conducted for each parent/guardian. The first session will take place via video conference and last approximately one hour, and the second via phone and last approximately thirty minutes. Parents will receive a handbook on nutrition, physical activity and talking about weight that they will be instructed to read before attending the session.
